View Full Version : CS3 or upgrade to CS4

Is there any reason why I should not upgrade to CS4 from CS3.
What advancements have they added to the AS section?

CS3 works only with FP9 while CS4 works with FP10. FP10 has a lot more features and CS4 introduces also the 2.5D.

Additionally, FP10 lets you use unloadAndStop, which is not available in FP9 (which basically means that loaded swfs can't ever be garbage collected in FP9).

There's also sound generation stuff like you'll find on Andre Michelle's blog.

I guess either way since it is my profession, I have a duty to update to the next version if I can't afford the latest version.
Are you guys using CS4 or CS5?
TNX for the info, 2D and FP10 are worth the price of admission by themselves.

I don't have great experience with CS4... At any rate, why are you upgrading to CS4 when CS5 is out??? Go with CS5... ;)
